What made you decide to retire?

After 12 years of competing in the world tour, I decided to retire because I felt like I had achieved everything I could and wanted to explore other avenues of cycling.
Transcript: "What made me decide to retire was-- the first reason was that I felt like I achieved everything I could, everything that my body was physically capable of achieving in the world tour. The second reason is I've been in the world tour for 12 years. And during that time, I discovered there's other aspects to cycling, and I wanted to use my last couple of-- last few years of being a high-performing athlete to go and explore those avenues, things like gravel, time trail outside of time trailing in the world tour, and like the crit racing in America, just really broadened my horizon. So it became a very easy decision."
